In a large number of inspections, it was found in the absolute majority of those stopped that they were adhering to the law, with those not doing so having to face immediate consequence.
The work was coordinated between the police corps, Transport Malta, and LESA. Due to the inspections related to immigration, the Detention Services Department also played a role in the surveillance efforts.
